Dr David Manley
Reader in Quantitative Geography
BA Hons (Lanc), MSc(Leic), PhD(StAnd)
David is interested in trying to better understand how the places in which individuals live interact with the outcomes that they experience over their life course. Key topics within this research include modelling and understanding neighbourhood effects, investigating how individuals and households locate in residential space and understanding how segregation develops and is maintained over very long periods of time. Crucial to this work is the notion that statistics can be used critically to challenge myths in the academic literature. David is also interested in more methodological problems including how neighbourhoods are represented and different scales and in different places. Recent publications include the first of a three volume edited series on neighbourhood effects work, published by Springer.
